August 21, 2019

Beyoncé is back with some new merchandise for fans. The pop and R&B legend released the BeySearch Collection, which went live on her official website around 1 p.m. ET on Friday (Aug. 9).

The fresh capsule was inspired by the millions of images that flood your Google Image search, filled with every memorable step of Bey's career. Each item's design attempts to capture an aesthetic of a "90s teenager's bedroom walls combined with the tidal wave of today's meme culture," according to a press release.

There's a lot going on with each piece, as the apparel and accessories are almost a Beyoncé Knowles-Carter mood board of sorts. The collection includes windbreakers, bucket hats, shorts, bodycon dresses, work shirts, crop tops, fanny packs, and phone cases.

Vogue Beyoncé Portrait Heading to Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery

August 21, 2019

A striking portrait of Beyoncé, shot by the rising photographer Tyler Mitchell for Vogue’s all-important September issue last year, is on its way to the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery in Washington.

Mr. Mitchell, who is the first African-American photographer and one of the youngest to shoot a cover for Vogue, announced the news online on Tuesday.

“A year ago today we broke the flood gates open,” Mr. Mitchell said on Instagram. “Since then it was important to spend the whole year running through them making sure every piece of the gate was knocked down. And now I’m glad to share this picture is being acquired into” the museum.

Concetta Duncan, a spokeswoman for the museum, confirmed the acquisition, but said the piece would not be on permanent display. It’s under discussion as to when the photograph will go on view, she said.

“We are delighted to acquire this magnificent portrait of Beyoncé,” Leslie Ureña, associate curator of photographs for the museum, said in a statement. “This particular work brought us closer to Beyoncé’s words, appearing within the magazine’s pages, and showing us more of the historic shoot.”

A Trio of 'Lion King' Albums Crowd Top 10 on Soundtracks Chart

July 31, 2019

The top 10 of Billboard's latest Soundtracks chart, dated Aug. 3, is brought to you by all things The Lion King, as three companion albums to both the new Disney movie and the same-named 1994 animated film populate the region.

Beyoncé’s new The Lion King: The Gift project opens at No. 1 on the tally, earning 54,000 equivalent album units in the week ending July 25, according to Nielsen Music. Meanwhile, Walt Disney Records’ new The Lion King soundtrack climbs 4-2 on the tally with 22,000 units earned (up 46%), and the same label’s soundtrack to the 1994 animated film pounces 13-9 with 7,000 units (up 48%).

The Soundtracks chart ranks the most popular soundtrack albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption as measured in equivalent album units. Units are comprised of traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA).

"The Lion King: The Gift" Debuts at No. 2 on Billboard 200

July 29, 2019

Beyoncé, who voices the character Nala in Disney’s new The Lion King film, sees her King-inspired album The Lion King: The Gift debut at No. 2 on the new Billboard 200 chart with 54,000 equivalent album units earned (with 11,000 of that sum in album sales). The album was released on July 19 via Parkwood/Columbia Records. The set, which is billed to Beyoncé & Various Artists, boasts Queen Bey performing on 10 of the album’s 14 songs. Those songs include “Spirit,” which is also heard in the film and included on its Walt Disney Records soundtrack, which zooms 31-13 on the Billboard 200.

Beyoncé executive produced and curated The Lion King: The Gift, and also is a producer on each of the set’s tracks.

The Lion King: The Gift marks Beyoncé’s ninth top 10 effort on the Billboard 200 as a soloist, and second new top 10 of 2019, following Homecoming: The Live Album (a debut at No. 4, May 4). Notably, Beyoncé is just the second act of 2019, and first woman, to achieve two new top 10s this year. She follows Future, who notched two new top 10s with Future Hndrxx Presents: The WIZRD (No. 1 on Feb. 2) and Save Me (No. 5 on June 22). (Beyoncé has actually seen three of her albums visit the top 10 in 2019 — the only act to achieve that feat this year. In addition to The Lion King: The Gift and Homecoming, her 2016 No. 1 Lemonade returned to the top 10 on the May 4-dated chart.)

Recording process for "The Lion King: The Gift" was documented!

July 24, 2019

Ali Baruck revealed on Instagram that she documented the recording process for "The Lion King: The Gift":

"The Lion King: The Gift. What an incredible project to be a part of. I had listened to Afrobeat before, but never experienced it on this level. Over the past few months, some of Africans finest talents flew from Nigeria, London, Ghana, South Africa and Cameroon to the LA studio to create beats, lyrics, chants, records...magic. The rooms beamed with creativity and a deep love for music and African culture. We were there til the early hours of the morning every night. Everyone shared their talents, culture, love for their homeland, we ordered authentic Nigerian food for dinner. The studio became a little family. It was all love ❤️ Meeting these artists was so amazing and seeing their process of making music was an unforgettable experience. All of these records are truly authentic to Africa, which was the first and most important thing the incredible A&R team stressed to everyone involved. It truly is a love letter to Africa ❤️🌍 I had the opportunity to document it 🎥

If you haven’t already, give The Lion King: The Gift a listen ✨a lot of hard work went into making it. Big congrats to everyone involved.

"The Lion King" Rules With $185 Million Debut

July 22, 2019

Simba and Mufasa reigned supreme this weekend as Disney’s “The Lion King” dominated box office charts. Director Jon Favreau’s remake of the animated classic collected a massive $185 million from 4,756 North American theaters during its first three days of release.

In yet another win for Disney, the movie landed the best domestic launch for a PG film and set a new record for the month of July. That figure also represents the second-best domestic debut of the year behind Disney and Marvel’s “Avengers: Endgame” ($357 million). After this weekend, the Buena Vista company now holds five of the top six biggest movies of 2018 so far.

Overseas, “The Lion King” felt the love with $269 million for a global start of $433 million. The film launched in China last weekend and has since earned $98 million, boosting the worldwide haul to $531 million.

Audiences also shelled out to see the hyper-realistic movie in the best quality possible. Imax theaters accounted for $25 million of tickets sold, while 36% of global ticket sales came from 3D screens.

(In the film, Glover voices the title role of Simba, and Beyoncé, of course, voices Nala. Eichner and Rogen each play Timon and Pumbaa, respectively.)

Disney Announces Beyonce-Produced 'The Lion King: The Gift' Album

July 10, 2019

Walt Disney announced on Tuesday (July 9) that Beyonce will be curating and producing a new album, The Lion King: The Gift. The album and the film's soundtrack will also include new Bey song called “Spirit.”

The album will feature a number of global recording artists and "steeped in the sounds of Africa," according to the announcement on Instagram.

“This is sonic cinema,” Beyoncé said of the record in a statement. “This is a new experience of storytelling. I wanted to do more than find a collection of songs that were inspired by the film. It is a mixture of genres and collaboration that isn’t one sound. It is influenced by everything from R&B, pop, hip hop and Afro Beat.”

“I wanted to put everyone on their own journey to link the storyline,” she continued. “Each song was written to reflect the film’s storytelling that gives the listener a chance to imagine their own imagery, while listening to a new contemporary interpretation. It was important that the music was not only performed by the most interesting and talented artists but also produced by the best African producers. Authenticity and heart were important to me.”

The Lion King: The Gift is out July 19, along with the live-action film, which features Bey as Nala.

Jon Favreau Reveals Beyoncé Wrote New Song for The Lion King

June 24, 2019

With tickets now officially on sale for The Lion King here at Fandango, we spoke exclusively with director Jon Favreau, who has followed up his work helming the 2016 live-action redo of The Jungle Book with another groundbreaking effort here. He tells us how the highly anticipated new version is different while still honoring both the original movie and the iconic stage adaptation, the challenges of accomplishing such changes, and how the casting bridges the various versions and generations. And yes, he lost his mind over learning Beyoncé would be involved.

Fandango: Beyoncé is obviously a big deal for this movie.

Jon Favreau: Yes.

Fandango: I read that you wanted her involved so bad you were willing to work around her schedule. Did you have to coordinate much in that regard?

Jon Favreau: Sure, she's very busy. She's doing a lot. She was directing Homecoming, making Lemonade, her family got larger while we were working together. And between touring and albums, she really has a prolific career in many areas. She's an artist and a singer and a performer and very involved. She has a lot of things going on. But she's incredibly engaged and committed, and so what was wonderful was that when we did get together to work, she was exceptional, as you can imagine in her performance, but also really gives everything a lot of thought. She's very hard-working and puts a lot of thought into things, and would often be so extremely well-prepared that she was clearly working on a lot on this even when we weren't together.

Katie Baron’s Fashion + Music delves behind the scenes to understand the beginnings and making of Beyonce’s iconic style.

Written by former Dazed and Vogue contributor and trend forecaster, Katie Baron, the book gives a unique insight into how fashion and music, working as twin agents, have reflected but also influenced popular culture. It features exclusive interviews with the creatives behind some of the most iconic and era-defining looks of music’s greatest heroes, including Beyonce. It explores the power of fashion as a make-or-break tool within the music industry’s creative process and gives context to the sound.

​There are two chapters featuring Beyonce and her work with B Akerlund and Jenke-Ahmed Tailly. The Akerlund chapter looks at their partnership for the campaign announcing the 2013 Mrs Carter World Tour, and the 2013 "Beyonce" visual album in particular the styling for "Superpower".

The Tailly chapter is solely focused on the partnership between Beyonce and her former creative director and that unique time period in Beyonce's career.

Check out exclusive pictures from the book in the gallery and remember to credit BeyonceOnline.org when sharing! The book is available now through Laurence King Publishing.

Beyonce’s Formation World Tour has now grossed $210 million (and counting). The first two legs of the tour -- through North America in the spring followed by a five-week trek in Europe that wrapped Aug. 3 -- generated 1.8 million tickets sold at 40 performances.

After a brief hiatus, the Formation World Tour will resume on Sept. 7 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.: the first stop on a final nine-city jaunt through North American markets that will wrap in Nashville on Oct. 2.

The Formation World Tour launched on April 27 in Miami, and concluded its first North American leg on June 14 after playing 23 shows on the continent. The tour headed to Europe and kicked off with a June 28 stadium show in Sunderland, England. The European segment included 17 concerts at 16 venues, with box office sales reaching $86.9 million.

Reported this week by tour promoter Live Nation, revenue from the European leg earns Beyoncé the No. 1 slot on Billboard’s weekly tally of Hot Tours.

Each of the venues on the European schedule hosted the tour for a single night except for London’s Wembley Stadium that drew 142,500 fans on July 2 and 3. The two-night stint earned $15.3 million, the sixth-highest gross of the year based on reported Boxscores from touring artists of all genres.

The best-attended show so far on the Formation World Tour occurred at her July 21 show at the Stade de France in Paris. A total of 75,106 tickets were sold to the concert. (That beats the 55,736 tickets sold to her May 14 Rose Bowl show in Pasadena, Calif. -- which had been the tour’s best-attended show.) Read more...
With Beyonce’s “Sorry” fading at rhythmic radio, Columbia Records is beginning to shift focus to the follow-up single.

“Hold Up,” said follow-up, was recently made available to rhythmic radio programmers. It will officially impact in conjunction with the August 16 add board.

Radio has already shown some interest in the song. In the days following the release of “Lemonade” — prior to Columbia’s confirmation that “Sorry” would be the official radio single — “Hold Up” registered as one of the album’s most played tracks.

“Sorry,” which is still gaining in airplay (though not necessarily moving to a higher position) at the urban format, peaked at #6 on the Mediabase rhythmic chart.

Down 23.2% in airplay versus the same time last week, it is #8 on the building chart for the current tracking period.
Beyonce’s Formation World Tour has so far grossed $123 million, through the end of the trek’s first leg, based on box office counts submitted during the past week by concert promoter Live Nation.

The tour’s opening run through the U.S. and Canada, which concluded on June 14, brought in 972,719 attendees from 23 sold out performances.

The latest reports from the promoter -- with sales from the final four venues of the first leg in North America -- totals $26 million, earning the diva the No. 1 slot on the latest Billboard Hot Tours roundup.

The biggest box office take during the opening leg was logged at one of the final stops, a two-show stand at Citi Field in New York City, the home venue of Major League Baseball's New York Mets. The singer performed to sellout crowds in the ballpark on June 7 and 8 with 73,486 fans in attendance. The only other venue with a two-night stint was Soldier Field that hosted concerts on May 27 and 28. The Chicago stadium drew the largest crowd of the two venues with 89,270 sold seats during the run.

The remainder of the 19 stadiums during the Formation World Tour's opening jaunt hosted the trek for just one performance. Of those venues, the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California, had the highest gross and attendance counts. At a single concert on May 14, the famed Los Angeles-area stadium took in $7.1 million from a crowd of 55,736. Read more...

Francesco Scognamiglio has designed one of the outfits that Beyoncé will wear on Monday night in Milan on the stage of her “Formation” world tour.

The Neapolitan designer, who debuted his first haute couture collection in Paris earlier this month, realized a hooded bomber jacket entirely covered with Swarovski, as well as a pair of pants combining crystals with precious floral-inspired decorations.

“I wanted to interpret the energy, strength, femininity and talent of a real style icon through my personal point of view with the goal of creating an unforgettable look,” Scognamiglio said.

Since the early stages of his career, the designer has often worked with international celebrities, in particular Madonna, who wore a Scognamiglio outfit in her “Give It 2 Me” video, directed by Tom Munro in 2008.
The 2016 Emmy Awards nominations are in, and for the 16th straight year, HBO is the top-nominated network with a total of 94 nods. And while a few music-related entities are among the potential honorees -- Taraji P. Henson's Cookie Lyon character from Fox hit Empire was one; Broadway star Audra McDonald as Billie Holliday in HBO film Lady Day at Emerson's Bar & Grill another -- Beyonce's HBO special/"visual album" Lemonade was shut out of the major categories.

Lemonade was, however, nominated four times. First, in the category Outstanding Production Design For A Variety, Nonfiction, Event Or Award Special; Hannah Beachler (Production Designer), Chris Britt (Art Director) and Kim Murphy (Set Decorator) are the people who stand to receive the award if the special wins against designers for Grease: Live, He Named Me Malala, the Oscars broadcast and The Wiz Live.

Second, Beyonce herself, alongside director Kahlil Joseph, are nominated in the Outstanding Directing For A Variety Special category. The duo are up against Grease: Live, the Grammy Awards broadcast, the Kennedy Center Honors broadcast and live specials from Adele and Amy Schumer. Third, editor Bill Yukich is up for Outstanding Picture Editing For Variety Programming, against episodes of Drunk History, Conan, Key & Peele and Last Week Tonight with Jon Oliver.

And finally, Lemonade as a whole has been nominated in the Outstanding Variety Special category, up against Adele Live In New York City, Amy Schumer: Live At The Apollo, The Kennedy Center Honors and The Late Late Show Carpool Karaoke Prime Time Special. The two nominations (for directing and for the special as a whole) bring Beyonce's total number of nominations to four through the years; previously she was nominated in 2013 for her Super Bowl Halftime Show performance, and again in 2015 for her On The Run tour documentary alongside husband Jay Z.
Beyoncé continues to live up to her royal nickname: Queen B and husband Jay Z are this year’s highest-paid celebrity couple, raking in a regal $107.5 million over the past year.

The sultry songstress pulled in $54 million, good enough to claim the No. 34 spot on our upcoming Celebrity 100 list—the annual ranking of the world’s top-earning superstars, which will be released tomorrow morning. Jay Z finished a smidgeon behind, taking the No. 36 slot with a $53.5 million tally.

Both got a boost from Beyoncé’s sixth No. 1 album, Lemonade, which debuted exclusively on Jay Z’s Tidal streaming service (his wife and several other Celebrity 100 members are co-owners). But Beyoncé edged her husband in annual earnings by playing 19 shows during our June-to-June scoring period, easily topping Jay Z’s grand total of two.

“I’ve never met anyone that works harder than me in my industry,” the songstress once told FORBES. Read more...
